Some of these include:
1. Taking photos and uploading them onto Flickr. I used to carry my camera with me everywhere I went, and I took pictures almost every day, if not several times a week. I went out yesterday and took some shots in the yard, and it was fun, if a little weird. But I need to get back into the habit of loading them off my camera, into Photoshop for a quick edit, and then onto Flickr/my blog. I used to do this daily, automatically. I miss sharing my life visually (which is sometimes so much easier than words.)
2. Being crafty. I need to get re-acquainted with my scrap/craft desk, it's been sitting gathering dust for far too long. Again, I used to scrap at least 3 nights a week, but besides the layout I made earlier this week I haven't touched it at all. Last night I went through the new Toast catalogues though, and ripped out all the beautiful images (seriously, I don't look at the clothes to buy, I look at the photography and styling!), so I may do some pages/home decorating projects with those soon, but there are other crafty things I want to get into as well. I have a sewing machine that has been sitting in its case untouched since June, and I need to bust it out and learn to use it!! And with a little one on the way now there are sooo many cute baby items I'd like to try and make, and blankets/bibs to get finished, and curtains for the nursery, so much! Not to mention knitting and crocheting, embroidery...just being crafty! My mom and grandmother might be coming next weekend, and I think it would be a perfect chance to get started on some of these things.
ADORABLE baby vest and hat made my Soulemama3. Thifting/shopping. Yep, might sound weird to say that I need to shop more, but lately I really do! My clothes are getting to that not-quite-too-small-but-kind-of-tight stage, and I imagine that in the next 2 weeks or so I'll be down to about 50% of my usual selection (which isn't much to begin with, especially for Fall clothes!). Sooo, that means I need to get a new wardrobe, yay!! But, like everything else, I haven't been to see my dear old friend, Value Village, for a good long thrifting excursion in quite awhile. I'm hoping that this will change this weekend, and that I find some cute Fall clothes. Top of my list: Some cute tights/leggings, maybe a plaid skirt, new jacket, shoes of any kind and some cardigans.
(Shopping Aside: It's also getting harder and harder for me not to want to buy baby clothes, there are so many cute items out there, just look! Adorable onsesies! Birds, trees, flowers...and a bear costume! Beyond adorable!)
There are other things I should get back into the habit of doing too, like cleaning, but I don't consider those things a priority ;) So yeah, just some things I've been thinking about lately with the coming of the new Season. I also need to get OUT of the habit of certain things too, like zonking out on the couch in the evenings, going to bed at 9:30, and generally being a lazy bum.
What are you plans for the weekend? Anything Fall-ish? (Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice Fall day, maybe I can convince Dan to do something outdoorsy with me.)
